American Idol Recap: Erika Van Pelt

American Idol Erika Van Pelt

‘American Idol’ heated up this week with yet another elimination bringing the competition down into the single digits.
 
Erika Van Pelt was unfortunately voted off on this week’s round.  The twenty-six-year-old performer from the east coast performed “New York State of Mind” in this week’s theme of the iconic singer Billy Joel.  Erika did change her image in attempts to sport a fierce new look for the judges, but sadly it wasn’t enough.  Stay tuned when we bring you a statement next week about Erika’s experiences with the Idol crew.
 
With only nine contestants to go, the competition will really be heating up.  Next Wednesday and Thursday, the remaining performers will be singing hits from Their Personal Idols.  It’s a show you won’t want to miss, and it all goes down Wednesday, March 28, and Thursday March 29 at 8/7c only on Fox.

We’re sad to see Erika go, but we wish her the best in her future pursuits.
